One can think of many reasons why the mansion (on the left) which the current Victorian Governor calls home is so much larger than the modest cottage (on the right) in which the first Governor housed his family in the mid nineteenth century. No doubt, the reasons have to do with security, ceremony, social rank and privilege. But on this morning’s walk, as I passed these two structures, I set myself the exercise of imagining a society in which the country’s leaders in government, entertainment, banking and industry would gladly forego the ostentation and pretension of great wealth to live merely comfortably. I think we used to call it egalitarianism.
